Life is Unpredictable and You Never Know What is Coming

Life is unpredictable, you could be alive today and dead tomorrow. Yes, we don’t know what will happen the next morning, we could just wake up and feel dizzy and it is the end, or we could just prepare ourselves to sleep and we felt too tired and exhausted, and the little we know our blood pressure is dropping down, we might make it to the hospital, but things will never be the same anymore, we can’t move nor we can’t see, we maybe have the will to get up and live but our body is too tired and immovable, we are slowly dying without knowing it ahead of time.

A few years ago, I have said that most people weren’t given a second chance to live or to grow up, but I realized we might have given the second chance but it was too late for us to realize that the second chance was already given to us and we just lost it forever for being unobservant.

It was five weeks ago when an Uncle died of heart attacked and now two of my relatives passed away in a week, a day apart, an uncle (Sept. 13) and grand aunt (Sept. 14). I was shocked upon hearing the sad news, I never thought it was that bad, I thought both of them will recover and live their life like they used to be, but God has different plans for them.

What is weird a few days or a week before the sad news happened. I have always seen black butterflies flying around everyday and two days before an uncle died, I saw a white medium size duck in our roof top early in the morning which is looking religiously at the church. I have thought of the duck as an angel because his feathers are so white and clean. It was weird to see a duck that early morning, I didn’t hear it came and I didn’t hear it flew away when it left. When I look around our neighbors duck, I didn’t find this particular duck, most of the ducks around where bigger and have dirty feathers.

What is more weird when I took a photo of a red rose in my grandmother’s backyard garden, an uncle died and when I took a photo of pink rose I saw in town, a grandaunt (my grandfather’s sister) died. I don’t know if it was only a coincidence, or is it a creation of my weird self or there is something more in it.

Update (3:50 PM).

When I went out this morning to walk my dog, I have seen another black butterfly flying around the trees and flowers, I have seen it many times lurking around my grandmother’s backyard. I felt a bit scared, but didn’t take it too seriously, but I just heard right now from my relatives who were talking outside that another grandaunt (my grandmother’s sister) passed away today (Sept. 17), the mother of an Uncle who died from a heart attacked five weeks ago.

Our Dull and Plain Boodle Fight Platter at D’ Curve Foodhouse

It was only a week ago when my friends and I had dinner at the newly opened restaurant in town called D’ Line Kitchen, and we have decided to see each other again at lunch at another newly opened restaurant called D’ Curve Foodhouse which is boasting their boodle fight platter menu.

D’ Curve Foodhouse was opened on August 08, it is located at Brgy. Poctoy, just a few meters away from the bridge of Torrel-Dapawan, the restaurant used to be an abandoned white house along the curb.

Most of us were late at our agreed time of 10 o’clock in the morning because of the pouring rain, the moment you go inside their very courteous server will greet you. Unlike D’ Line Kitchen which is very bold and plain, D’ Curve  Foodhouse has a very impressive look inside, from the curtains, wallpapers, furniture’s and etc.,

We’ve met because one of our highschool classmate who was stationed in Odiongan would like to see us all, I guess he envy our dinner meeting a week ago.  We’ve ordered their Municipyo platter of D’ Curve’s  Fiesta, which cost ₱1,749, the menu consists of Sweet and Chilli Crabs, Garlic Shrimps, Crispy Liempo, Grilled Fish, Chicken Inasal, Chicken Adobo sa Gata, Pork Sisig, Laing, Steamed Rice with Crispy Danggit.

The food was served within thirty minutes or more, but we didn’t notice the waiting time because we’re too busy talking as if we didn’t see each other a week ago. We are all in awe when the boodle fight platter was served, we couldn’t just believed what we saw. One of my friends blurted out, that maybe next time we should just buy and prepare our own food, seconded by many.

The boodle fight platter was very dull and simple, it wasn’t that attractive at all, it was like the food we’ve ordered were just toppled all together in a banana leaf, what I mean there was no design, nor effort in preparing the boodle fight platter, they could at least add onions, chili pepper, cucumber, tomatoes or calamansi or whatever the cheapest greens or vegetable/fruit in the market they could get to make the platter attractive or appetizing to eat.

Chicken Adobo sa Gata

Their Pork Sisig has a dull taste, it is given because they are not Ghetto Plates

We’ve almost finished our food when the male server came, saying they forgot to add the garlic shrimps, one of my friend took it and pour them down on our food,  we didn’t mind the shrimps being served late because at least they remember, right?

The shrimps that were forgotten to be included in the boodle fight platter

It also says in their menu that there will be crispy danggit in the platter, but we are surprised to see fried tuyo (dried fish) instead, I know it is a common courtesy to inform your customer first before changing something in their order but they have failed on this, but since it danggit wasn’t the main dish it wasn’t an issue, we ate our food without realizing something was missing, we’ve been busy talking and laughing together.

Well, the food was ok, the liempo for me is just a bit salty, but it is tolerable, the chilli crabs were just fine as well as the other viand and the Chicken Inasal… is tasteless because they didn’t serve or add chicken inasal in our platter, yes you read it right! D’ Curve forgot to serve the Chicken Inasal when it is included in the food we have ordered.

It was late when I or we realized that we are robbed of Chicken Inasal, if I haven’t look at my photos again I will not noticed it, to be sure if I was not mistaken, that maybe the chicken inasal was served in a different platter and I wasn’t able to take a photo of it, I have asked my friends and they confirmed they didn’t serve chicken inasal to us.

We stayed a little bit after eating our lunch because we are waiting for another friend who is coming from afar, she was late because it is hard to travel to town when raining.  When she arrived, we moved to another location to get  a coffee.

D’ Curve Foodhouse looks promising they just failed in completing our orders when it wasn’t that busy when we had our  lunch, we are the only people who were there, new people only arrive when our food was already served. One of my friend says, we should just let it passed because they were a new restaurant but when you heard a different story from a friend that they were served a different food from what they have ordered is another juicy story.

Well, I think it is better if their restaurant wasn’t house in a house, I mean it is more appropriate or it will be a hit if their restaurant was built in a native hut, have native displays and furniture, like Laszaji Grill since their serving food in a native or traditional Filipino way.

D’ Line Kitchen: A Newly Opened Restaurant in Odiongan

Almost over a year since we last met, my friends and I decided to see each other again for  dinner to a newly opened restaurant called D’ Line Kitchen in town. One of our friends came home from abroad and the other celebrated her birthday a few days ago, we have agreed to meet at 4 o’clock in the afternoon and as expected, we are very loud and glad to see each other again, as if we rented the whole place for us.

We’ve ordered while waiting for the others, when I arrived there were three of our friends already waiting.  G and I arrived at the same time, so we have ordered the same time.  The food was served together as we requested, I wasn’t able to track down the time how long they were served because we are all busy chit chatting.

Oriental Seafood Pasta for ₱180

D’ Line Kitchen was opened on August 3, it was located at D’ Fourth building which used to be a disco bar, the place was spacious and best for a large group to dine in. The place was very simple and not much to admire except the gothic combination of dark tables and white tiled floor as well as the look of their modern reception bar/kitchen.

Shrimp Dynamite for ₱195

The food was expensive compare to other restaurants in town, especially they only come in small servings, yes the food is only good for one and maybe two if you are a small eater.  For me their food is lacking of something, some were a bit oily and salty, especially their garlic rice, which is burnt (maybe because they’ve used oyster sauce as two of my friends claimed) and way too salty, you can still taste the salt in it.  It was garlic rice, but I can’t find a stronger taste of garlic in it, honestly my sister’s garlic rice is way better than this.  It was expensive when it was only good for two people or one if you are a bit hungry.

Garlic Rice ₱150

What wowed me is their Tomato Basil Pasta with breaded Chicken, it catches my taste bud but it is quite expensive for ₱200, I need more pasta than the chicken.

Tomato Basil Pasta with breaded Chicken ₱200

What I have ordered is pancit canton since most of my friends ordered pasta and we both agreed to order a different type of food so we can share each food. The pancit canton was served in a small fan, it was a bit oily and salty. I don’t know if they used too much soy sauce, or the dried noodles is salty or is it the kikiam making the noodles salty? The pancit canton has not much vegetables in it, well given that it has a lot of kikiam toppings I don’t think I should complain about it.

Pancit Canton for ₱150

The restaurant was on their second day when we came in but it wasn’t that busy as expected for a newly opened restaurant, I wonder if we are just way too early or maybe it wasn’t advertised properly. It was over six in the evening when we left and there was only one family who came to eat.

Creamy Mussels for ₱180

Mango Cilantro Chicken for ₱150

We’ve been talking about the food when suddenly the man sitting nearby our table came in and asked about the food, he introduces his self as the restaurant chef and did a handshake with a friend. My friends answered that the food was okay, but if he will ask me, I will definitely say “can you add more pasta in my plate?”, anyway, I voiced out my opinion that their garlic rice is salty  (lol).

Chicken Fingers for ₱150

Salmon Belly Fish and Chips for ₱150

The dessert below were two pieces Bollycao for ₱100,  Bollycao is the Spanish version of French croissants, and the frozen cheesecake for ₱180 each.

The restaurant is a bit expensive for a normal Odionganon, especially the food came in small servings, but their food is a must try if you are already tired of eating braised or fried chicken, their servers were kind and helpful. The restaurants need more improvements to make it look classy, I think it will be nice if they don’t leave the walls empty.

Classic Carbonara for ₱150

Family Dinner at Patok sa Bagto in Looc, Romblon

We had a family dinner at one of the popular restaurants in the municipality of Looc last night. We have been planning to visit Patok Sa Bagto for a long time, but we just can’t find time to visit it since it was a bit far.  We arrived at the restaurant after almost an hour of traveling from Odiongan.

When we arrived, I immediately informed the server that we need table for five persons and I was corrected by my mother that we are six (haha).  We are given the hut #5, we are not fully seated yet and we are already given the menu that’s how great the servers were. 🙂

Small pot of rice for ₱80 each

Looking at their menu, it was indeed true that their food is expensive as many of my friends claimed.  We have ordered a few and within less than 15 minutes they started serving our food, their food came in small servings and yes it is a bit expensive compare to the food you can order at Bantigue Resort.

Calamares for ₱180

The restaurant was uniquely built in a fish pond with bamboo walkways connecting to separate huts where customers can sit and eat privately with their friends and family.

Pork Loin for ₱200

Olio Pescatora with garlic bread for ₱180 (but didn’t find any garlic bread in my plate)

The Olio Pescatora I have ordered comes with garlic bread but I didn’t receive any, I wasn’t able  to take notice of it because I was too busy tinkering my phone, looking for the self-timer upront. I have only realized it when we came home and I have looked through my photos, including the photo of their menu.

Buttered Vegetables for ₱220

Beef Bulalo (Regular) for ₱280

My mother loves their calamares so she ordered another servings of it, she reasoned out it was good for the beer that my father and  cousins were drinking.

Calamares for ₱180

Fruit Salad for ₱38 each

Well, I guess it is best to eat at Patok sa Bagto during lunch to appreciate and enjoy the pond because you can’t see anything good at night around the restaurant other than the well lit huts at night.

The food in Patok sa Bagto is okay but I love the taste of the  food at Bantigue Resort, it is more savory for me.
